9. Manhunt: A Different Kind Of War (LWT, ITV, Episode 8, 20 February 1970)
Manhunt was a 26-part French resistance drama, and pretty much relentlessly bleak and brutal. Obviously its a nonsense that French papers would have English headlines, but the moment when a a young Jewish woman uncovers a cache of these newspapers in the wardrobe of (what appears to be) a safe house is characteristically horrible.
